BOYC: Lazy Sunday Edition and a Bit of Trivia

I should be doing laundry. I am going to do BYOC, instead.

After I run downstairs and grab a load to toss in my washer and pee.


Okay. I'm back.

Let's rock and roll.

1. I’m going to pick a person in your life – not knowing if you have a good or bad, existing or non-existent relationship with them – and your mission is to pick 5 words or traits or thoughts to describe them.

Your paternal grandmother.

My paternal grandmother was:

Generous. She passed her dark circles under her eyes and huge knockers down to me. What a gal, huh? ;) lol 

2. What’s your all time favorite color to paint your nails? And your toes?

Uh... Have you seen my polish collection? lol But seriously, I would have to say blue. I own more blue polishes than any other single colour. I also adore red, pink, I have come to appreciate a great purple. Even green. Just about anything goes, for both tips and toes. Even black. (Black polish is very chic! It isn't just for goths or emo brats, you know... :)) Except brown. Any shade of brown, tan or cafe au lait isn't flattering to me and give me lobster claws. 

3. Do you get along with your parents well?

My mother and I are, in the parlance of Forrest Gump, like peas and carrots. We are very close. In fact we share some kind of freaky psychic bond. My mother is my best friend, my mentor and has an elegance of self that I can only aspire to. 

My bio father is dead. We didn't have much of a relationship. He wasn't that interested and I never saw him after my mother separated from him when I was nine. He died in 1996 of CHF.

My step dad, whom I considered my real dad died nearly three years ago from prostate cancer. We weren't closecloseclose but we had a really good relationship. I loved him and respected him so much and I think about and miss him every day. 

4. Speaking of rainbows – rank the rainbow colors in the order you prefer.

Aw, geeze! Do I have to? Okay... Crap. What are the colours in the rainbow? My second grade science fled my poor, menopause addled brain long ago. (Back to Draz's post to refresh my memory.)


And because Draz did it, I am going to stick pink in there, too. Right between blue and red. Hey, if she gets pink in her rainbow, so do I! :P Neener! Neener!

5. Repeat question. How was your week in real life and in blog land this week?

Set your needle on my broken record and watch it spin, baby! (The first person to leave me a comment saying "What's a record and why does it need a needle?" is going to get punched in the boob. Or the onions. Whichever.) 

It is hotter than Satan's nutsack, today. Thank heaven it isn't humid along with it. I would be ready for the crazy house, if it were. 

One quart of water down... Two to go. Maybe three. We'll see how it goes. No more trying to force six quarts down the hatch. That is just too frakking much! Besides, I have other things I want to do. Like breathe. I don't need sucking down a gallon and a half of water and pissing it out to be the main focus of my life. That needs to be reserved for bad TV and YouTube videos. :P

Grok and grokking are in my spell checker! How fucking awesome is that? 

Oh. Yeah... After a few not so great (but not disastrous) days, again yesterday was really good. And I am feeling good today, too. Why is it that I always seem to get on a roll when I start paying attention to what I am doing on a Saturday? I are a strange one. That's for sure. Now to get my lazy ass out to walk, again. 

There is a spider living under my dressing table. It needs to die. But thanks to my trashed knees (I am screwed if I ever have to go squat in the woods and pee) I can't get down there to wade in and make him buy the farm. I may have to use a teeny bit of Raid. I don't like the idea of using that stuff in my room. Maybe I can talk one of the male pussies in this household to get down there and get him for me. If not... I am going to spray the little fucker. Because one way or another, he has to go. I can't have a spider living in my bedroom

Did you know that over the course of our lifetime we all eat several spiders in our sleep? 


  1. Hmmm another one for Orange as last. : ) I've sorta been keeping track cause it's my fav. :)

    I totally agree, no free loading spiders get to live in the house as far as I'm concerned. Try to get the males to kill it though rather than spray the raid. /nod

  2. Get this. This weekend at Jenny's she turned to me and said, "You know who I saw a pic of who I thought was look freaking hot ass skinny?" I said, "Who?" And she answered, "Ice Queen". I said I know right??? Did you see her collarbones in that picture? Okay done just wanted to share that.

  3. Ok, that last line was just plain mean. I'll never sleep again! LOL

  4. Erika....please help me!! I love the Button's everyone is putting on their blog's for others to potentially grab. How or where do you go to find out how to make one for oneself???
